Equity Valuation and Ratio Analysis

Equity Valuation and Ratio Analysis

Investors and analysts use valuation models to select stock, read the market, project the value of corporate actions, support opinions about fair price in M&A, determine the value and risk of a portfolio of investments, and evaluate a company’s performance, current state and future plans.


There are many approaches and estimating the puts for a valuation model can be quite challenging. Investment success, however, can depend crucially on your ability to determine the values of the stock. This course serves as an introduction to the process of equity valuation. We will focus on a few approaches to equity valuation, and integrate them with finance and accounting concepts to help you value companies from an investor’s perspective.
